The Atlanta Hawks aren’t going to surprise anyone this year.
After the best season in franchise history (and one of the best social media performances in all of sports), the Hawks are looking to produce a similar result this year, albeit with a slightly different lineup.
Kent Bazemore is slated to start on Tuesday night against the Detroit Pistons, replacing DeMarre Carroll in the Hawks starting lineup. He joins Kyle Korver, Al Horford, Paul Milsap and Jeff Teague.
The Pistons, meanwhile, are simply looking to get back on track. Detroit hasn’t reached a postseason since 2009, but showed signs of life last season. Their 32 wins were the most since 2009.
The season-opening tilt is slated to get underway at 8 p.m. ET. It won’t be broadcast on TV, but is available on NBA League Pass. Here’s how to watch online and on mobile:
